Earlier in the week Thundercat surprised us by releasing a new mini-album titled The Beyond/Where the Giants Roam. The album is pretty short with only six songs of jazz fusion with a similar sound to his previous releases The Golden Age of Apocalypse and Apocalypse. The only difference is the missing elements of funk and soul that were a big part of the previous releases. The exception is Them Changes which I love and samples the drums from The Isley Brothers’ Footsteps in the Dark.
The album was co-produced by Flying Lotus and features the legendary Herbie Hancock, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Kamasi Washington and Mono/Poly. Stream Them Changes below and head to iTunes to purchase.
